Awtar awarded 2011 ASME Freudenstein / General Motors Young Investigator Award
The Freudenstein / General Motors Young Investigator Award was established by the ASME's Design Engineering Division to encourage young investigators in accomplishing high quality research. The award is aimed at a paper with significant original contribution to the theory of mechanisms and the potential to enhance the public good.
ME Assistant Professor Shorya Awtar won this award for his paper titled "An XYZ Parallel Kinematic Flexure Mechanism with Geometrically Decoupled Degrees of Freedom," which was co-authored by graduate students John Ustick and Shiladitya Sen. The award was presented at the 35th Mechanism and Robotics Conference held in Washington DC in August 2011.
